Parse String

I have a child window that lets the user choose a company which on clicking submit closes the child window and populates the parent with the company name. I want to add a second field to pass to the parent window. So I concatenated the 2 fields but I need to break them up before I send them to the parent. Example: companyname;orgid I need to put the companyname in 1 field and the orgid in the 2nd field on the parent form. Is there a way that I can separate these fields by maybe a substring?
